Current Club Champ, Philipp Lamby (2195), claimed his second State Championship scoring 3.5 points. Donny Gray (2082) posted 3.0 points to finish with a positive score in the Open Section.

Adam Shaw (1610) tied for first in the Amateur Section with 4 points but since Adam is from GA he is not eligible for the state title. Robert Folts (1761) scored 3 points finishing with a plus score and Steve Boshears (1600) scored 2.5 points not losing a game this weekend with a win and three draws in four rounds.

The Cola Club owned the Reserve Section as nine members competed claiming the top six spots. David Boyd (1129) took the Championship scoring 4.0 points finishing just a .5 point ahead of Birney Blind (1282) and Shiva Balasubramanian (1242).
